First Trailer for the "Gosnell" Movie has Dropped
The first trailer for the Gosnell movie has finally hit the internet. Produced by our friends Phelim McAleer and Anne McElhinney, starring the greatest Superman this generation has ever known, Dean Cain.
The film gets its title from a 2014 grand jury report that accuses the doctor of killing hundreds of newborns over the course of several decades in Philadelphia, though he was convicted of just three counts of first-degree murder and one count of involuntary manslaughter.
The movie, directed by Justified actor Nick Searcy and starring Earl Billings as Gosnell, has had a tough road, with producers Phelim McAleer and Anne McElhinney claiming that they were thrown off Kickstarter due to the anti-abortion nature of their film and had difficulty setting business meetings via traditional Hollywood avenues.
The Gosnell case is a sick one, and was "well covered" (see Gosnell Movie About Abortion Doctor Scores a Distribution Deal and Book about Abortionst “Gosnell”… SNUBBED by NY Times Bestseller List?!). "Well covered" if you get your news from someplace other than CNN, The New York Times, or check out the National Enquirer as you wait in line to buy a tub of Hagen Das.
Mainstream media outlets ignored Gosnell like a gentleman ignores Lena Dunham. Change my mind.
Prediction on how the media will cover Gosnell now there's a movie: they'll pass the case off as just some right-wing, bible-thumping fetus lovers trying to toss Roe v. Wade. But Dean Cain is a regular on both the Today Show and the Hallmark Channel. He's not exactly someone the press will be able to easily dismiss as fringe. Plus we won't let this one fall through the cracks. You shouldn't either.
